First Comes Love--Giveaways

To celebrate the release of First Comes Love, a couple of bloggers are getting together and hosting giveaway events. The prize is a free, hardcover copy of First Comes Love. Here are the sites and the schedule. All you have to do is stop by their sites and sign up; winners are chosen at random. Thanks so much to all of these lovely bloggers for helping to spread the word:
Also, I’m currently giddy that Seventeen Magazine posted information about First Comes Love on their site. My favorite quote is:

“You'll love it if... you're looking for the perfect love story to kick-start your summer reading. It's The Notebook with a slight touch of cynicism and sarcasm.”

P.S. I just spent $100 on cupcakes for my book release party. Please come with room for dessert.

Playlist #1

First Comes Love is here, in the raw, in the flesh. I just received my hardcover copies, which means if you pre-ordered yours, they are on their way! I love this book. I'm just going to scream it. I LOVE IT!! Honestly, if I never write another book again, I would be happy to end my career with this novel, that's how much it means to me. I guess every author feels that way about all of their books, but First Comes Love is very special to me. Please buy a copy. I know you'll love it, too. And don't worry, this won't be the last book I ever write.

I am sharing one of the playlists that inspired this novel (this is Gray's playlist, songs that helped to develop his character throughout the story). There are two more playlists included at the end of the book, but you'll have to track down a copy to see them.

Just a reminder, the First Comes Love release party will be at Grass Roots Books and Music on the evening of May 8th, at 7 p.m. in Corvallis, Oregon. This event is only open to uniquely awesome individuals (yes, that means you), so if you're in the area, stop by and watch me juggle fire torches and break concrete with my mind--as well as autograph books and answer questions. Now, sit back and enjoy some ear candy:
